Rhone is known for making high-quality workout gear, and the Versatility Short is no exception. The fabric stretches well and breathes exceptionally well for hotter training sessions. The fit is excellent, too. This model is perfect for lifters and athletes who want an excellent all-around workout short that they can wear in the gym, out on the town, or during their favorite activities.

This particular short also boasts some other features that will likely be challenging to come by on other shorts. First, it has a trifecta of pockets (the name is a mouthful) that will satisfy any exerciser’s need for stowing keys, tunes, and energy gels. Finally, the short’s oh-so-smart stow-and-go features are the best in the business. Finally, the fast comes in two different inseam lengths, so you can choose the one that fits your needs. The Rhone Versatility Short is a great workout quick with plenty of high-performance features that won’t break the bank.


The Rhone Versatility Short is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a short that can serve as training and daily wear shorts. Its warp-knit fabric stretches well and breathes great for hotter sessions, so you can tackle workouts without worrying about your shorts being too tight or constricting. In addition, the interior waistband drawcord allows you to adjust the fit, and an invisible zippered pocket keeps your small valuables safe from the elements.

I’ve always liked the Rhone brand’s attention to detail; these shorts are no exception. They feature a triplex stitching design on the bottom right thigh, the Rhone River/trident logo is imprinted on the left thigh under the zippered back pocket, and the “Man is not made for defeat” inspirational quote is printed on the inside of the rear waistband. I also like how they balanced the load-bearing pockets, so there’s no side sag when packing them full of stuff.


Rhone does a great job designing premium performance clothing for men that will stand up to everything from an arduous commute to a hot gym workout. Their attention to detail includes innovative fabrics from around the globe engineered to perform better and last longer. For example, their SilverTech material is the best at wicking sweat, and their flatlock seams are designed to reduce chafing. They’ve also covered you with ventilation with well-placed mesh panels that help keep your body cool and dry throughout the workout.

So whether you’re hitting the gym, the trails, or just kicking back with friends, these Rhone Versatility Shorts are the perfect piece to elevate your look while keeping you comfortable and confident.


The Rhone Versatility Short is an excellent option for lifters and athletes looking for a workout short that can be worn in the gym and for daily wear. It’s constructed with a warp-knit fabric that stretches to a high degree while also providing good ventilation. It also dries quickly and is comfortable to wear in the heat of training. The only real drawback is that the shell of this model can become frayed and worn down if you do a lot of barbell knurling or other exercises that cause frequent abrasion to the body. This won’t be an issue for most lifters, but it is something to keep in mind if you wear this short frequently in the weight room.

The Rhone Apparel line is designed to bridge the gap between specialized performance wear that doesn’t look good and casual clothes that can’t stand up to a real workout. These athletic shorts feature a trio of pockets that can be used to stow keys, tunes, and energy gels for various training sessions.
